Acupuncture treatment of Infertility | Zen Acupuncture Clinic of Milpitas

Acupuncture is a technique related to alternative medicine. Ancient Chinese physicians are considered the founders of acupuncture, who began to use it several millennia before the development of official medicine. 

Here, at Zen Acupuncture clinic of Milpitas, we can help you to treat infertility. 

For a long time it was considered that acupuncture was not an effective method of treatment for infertility, and all the positive results were attributed to the placebo effect. However, through numerous scientific experiments, it was possible to establish that acupuncture as an additional way to solve problems with infertility is quite effective. It was found that if acupuncture was included in a woman's IVF cycle, then pregnancy in such cases occurred 50-60% more often than during a regular IVF cycle.

What is the effect of acupuncture in fertility treatment?

- The blood flow in the internal genital organs of a woman increases, as a result of which the endometrium thickens, and this is a prerequisite for a successful conception and pregnancy. - Acupuncture has a sedative effect, thereby helping to relieve stress, which in many cases is the main cause of infertility. - The use of acupuncture helps to normalize hormonal levels, which in turn contributes to the normal onset of ovulation. - Often, acupuncture is also used for menstrual irregularities (irregularity or complete absence of menstruation), which also plays an important role in the treatment of infertility. - Acupuncture is also used in the treatment of male infertility. This technique helps to stimulate the work of the testes, which positively affects the quality of sperm and sperm motility.
